Welcome Dr. Phillips Pop Warner Cheerleading!
DP Cheerleading provides young cheerleaders an opportunity to cheer and compete in an organized, supervised, safety-oriented environment.
Cheerleaders will be placed on a squad based on their age/grade and experience level according to the Pop Warner Age Matrix. Each squad is assigned to a football team and will accompany them to all their home and away games—including post-season play at invitational bowls and regional/national playoff games. The cheerleaders cheer during the games and also perform at halftime.
Along with cheering for football games, cheerleaders at the Tiny Mite and Mity Mite level will also perform in the Mid Florida Cheer Exhibition to show off the skills they have learned throughout the season. Cheerleaders in the Junior Pee Wee division and up compete at the Mid Florida conference level, for the opportunity to advance to the Southeast Region and National competitions.

At the heart of any Dr. Phillips Pop Warner Cheer Squad you can find five fundamental lessons that will prove pivotal in the growth and development of our cheerleaders, both on and off the field. There are so many factors that go into making an exceptional cheer experience. Teamwork, discipline, perseverance, goal setting, and integrity lay the foundation for all that we do.
